5 Best Tips to Keep Your Flower Bouquets Fresh!
Many have tried and it seems that aspirin is the magic that keep roses and other cut flowers fresh longer. Simply put a ground aspirin in the water before adding your flowers and voila, the blooms will rise and shine for the next few days. Also, don’t forget to change the water afterwards.
Pour about 1/4 cup of soda into the water in the vase and witness the amazingly longer time it can help your blooms last. Yes, the sugar in the soda will help your cut flowers remain fresh for several days. Use Sprite or 7-Up for crystal clear water effect!
3. Apple Cider Vinegar and Sugar
This is a powerful method to keep your blooms firm and rising for a long time. Simply mix 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar and 2 tablespoons sugar with the room temperature in a vase before adding the flowers. Make sure you have time to change the water with new mix every few days to have a long-lasting effect.
4. Flower Food
This is one of the most accessible and convenient way to keep your flowers fresh longer. You only need to fill your vase with room temperature water and add in a packet of flower food. Mix the flower food with water following the instruction from the back of the package. Make sure that it's not too concentrated!
Sounds extreme? But in fact, it works for most flowers since they survive better in cooler temperature! Lower temperature is believed to stop your flowers from aging. Put your bouquet in the fridge every day around 6-8 hours, preferable before bedtime, and you can see the immediate effect. No space in the fridge at home? An air-conditioned room will do fine.
